Numbers Count

Numbers Count lessons are taught by Mrs L Langford a specially trained teacher. The children work  individually or in pairs. After an initial assessment the teacher carefully plans individually tailored lessons for each child. Rigorous, active lessons focus on numbers and calculation, helping learners to develop skills and attitudes that will ensure good progress in class lessons. The teacher liaises with parents and shares their specialist knowledge with colleagues informally and through structured CPD, raising standards for all learners.

At Church Hill children taking part in Numbers Count on average make a Number Age gain of 18 months in only 4 months- over 4 times the expected progress.
